Four went for dinner. Frogs legs and roasted oyster for apps. Reuban, steak sub, burger and oyster platter for dinner. Very reasonable prices and excellent service. If we lived near here we would eat here often.

An unpretentious dining room in a very picturesque setting in Reedville harbor. Very well prepared and varied menu with fish and seafood the main focus. One of the best fresh fish sandwiches on the Bay.
